I had seemed to be doing pretty good post op. Around week 8 was off the opiates and taking only IB during day and muscle relaxer and Tramadol before bed. I started PT at week 8 and WHAM. Got hurt doing pelvic bridges and inflamed the nerve. The week got progressively worse till i couldn't drive one day. I went back to doc and was given another prednisone dose pack which really helped but I just don't seem to be back what I was before. It has been three weeks since the relapse. I changed the pt for now and will go back to swimming and walking after waiting 10-14 days for swelling to subside. That nerve is my enemy. The relapse has been discouraging to say the least. I dont have the pain in my lower right calf as i did 2 weeks with the flare up so im hoping for improvement. It seems the PT was irresponsible for now. i didnt know better because my 2 other non nerve compressing herniations "healed" and I did PT and got strong. Even pre op i was on elliptical 3-4 days a weeks and walking so right now im no worried about my leg strength and more concerned with letting this flareup swelling go down.
Has anyone had any issues post op with professional PT being a negative?
